I love Grammarly, but the Terms of Service<> say:

By accessing or using the site, services and/or software, you confirm that you are at least 18 years old (or if you are between 13 and 17 years old, inclusive, that you are using the site, services and/or software only with the approval of your parent or guardian), that you are legally able to enter into this agreement, and that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by this agreement.

Our administration interprets the phrase “…you are legally able to enter into this agreement…” as requiring that students be at least 18.

How are others dealing with this headache?

Some of my teachers are unhappy with all the misspelled words that are not picked up by the Google Docs spell checker. Are others having this problem? Does anyone have a suggestion for a solution?

The plural of anecdote is not data.

I took all of the standard subjects in school. 'Reeling and Writhing, of course, and then the different branches of Arithmetic — Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision.'
